    Looking of 2 x reel of FTP cable

    Thank you for the eduction. Apologies for making fun of your OP title. I am inclined to think you will have more success referring to it as Shielded CAT5/6, here is SA at least.

    Come to think of it, if you connect the S and M strands it will result in a F strand. So, FTP cable, done.

    Ancestry DNA Testing

    The local services are twice as expensive. I used MyHeritage.com (they also own geni.com) special offer two years ago. Was about a grand, all in. Have look, they often have specials. It's our useless ZAR that screws us over. On Geni.com their enter-level option now is $79. R1,169.00
